OKLAHOMA HEAD COACH MARK WILLIAMS

On Winning the National Championship: "This is a big thrill. Winning the National Championships at home is amazing. As a coach I thank my players for the effort that they gave today. The heart that they showed down the stretch was amazing. I never knew that we had it won until Daniel Furney landed on the high bar. I think the key for us was Quinn Rowell on the high bar."

OKLAHOMA SOPHOMORE QUINN ROWELL

On Winning Tonight: "I don't know what to say. I have to thank Mark Williams. It's been a long three years since I got here and I've been hurt a lot. Every chance I had to do something, I got hurt. Mark hadn't given up on me and neither had the guys. This is by far the best thing that has ever happened to me. It was worth the wait."

OHIO STATE HEAD COACH MILES AVERY

On Tonight's Competition: "This meet is the most exciting gymnastics meet to be a part of. This is for the pride of your school and these guys are student-athletes. I thought we performed well, but we had one really bad event. I thought second would feel a lot worse than it does, but it actually feels okay. I'm really happy for Mark Williams and his program and what they have done."
